Thursday, May 02, 2013 - Last week, a form two student from Highway Secondary School impressed President Uhuru Kenyatta and delegates at Statehouse Mombasa with his narrative piece Otongolo Time.

His story was later on featured by NTV and touched many Kenyan hearts. Celebrities came out in large numbers to help him clear his fees and Uhuru also came to his rescue paying his school fees through University.

Following a visit to Statehouse, Presidential Press Service made the following update:

President Uhuru Kenyatta has offered full education sponsorship to Daniel Owira, the form two Highway Secondary School student who moved the audience to tears during the Kenya National Drama Festival State concert in Mombasa.

Speaking when he meet Daniel at State House Nairobi today, President Kenyatta said he will pay for his school fees up to and including the university level.

The President said he will be monitoring closely the education progress of the Highway Secondary School student.
“You are now one of my sons. Make sure you give me your report form every end of the term,” President Kenyatta said.

Saying he will move Daniel out of the slums and enroll him as a boarder in his current school, the Head of State urged Daniel to aim at developing his acting talents as he pursues his education.

Said the President: “As I educate you, make sure you do well but do not stop your theatrical work and co-curricular activities.”

The President also assured Daniel’s mother Ms Rose Owiyo that he will revive and revitalize her business. President Kenyatta added that he will support Daniel’s elder sister Susan who works as a volunteer assisting
girls in the slums.

After the meeting, President Kenyatta conducted Daniel on a tour of State House.
